Patrice Plank, who calls Victoria, B.C., Canada her home, has been an artist most of her life. Inspired by nature, Parice tries to capture the beauty surrounding her. Her favorite subjects include birds, butterflies, dragonflies, animals, marine life and flowers.
In the past her primary media was traditionally oils and acrylics. She has since fallen in love with clayboard scratch art and has been dedicated to this medium for the past seven years. Patrice scratches her original art into the surface of the clayboard with very delicate tools and using a magnifier, reveals the design in exquisite detail in shades of black and white. She then paints her art with special watercolors or acrylics.
Her scratch art has won numerous awards and her art is included in private collections throughout the world.
